I still miss vampire taps. And even just being able to connect
machines with thin coax, no hubs or switches required.
If it's not coax, they shouldn't go calling it Ethernet.
They should call it point-to-point twisted pair that just
Ethernet package can travel across.

Does anyone even use thin coax anymore?

Never mind me, I'm just sick and depressed.
